It’s been a long time coming, but Singapore and Hong Kong residents can finally board a flight out to visit another city in a matter of days.
Already, hotels and travel operators are gearing up for visitors, albeit in modest numbers — and Lifestyle Asia is no different. As the travel bubble commences, the editors of the Singapore and Hong Kong editions are collaborating to bring you the ultimate guide to each other’s cities.
For the last 12 years, both editorial teams have been pounding the pavement for up-to-date lifestyle reportage, covering the latest openings and extensive reviews of everything from the most polished new restaurants to the hippest hotels.
“There’s really no better time than now for us to tap on the local Hong Kong team’s expertise — Evelyn and her team knows the city inside out so you’ll have the best experience even in the midst of a pandemic,” said Azimin Saini, Editor of Lifestyle Asia Singapore. “If you’re looking to go on a hike in Hong Kong, or even knock back a few negronis, they’re who I would turn to.”
“We’re lucky to have savvy editors located all across the region who can offer the best recommendations for their respective cities,” said Evelyn Lok, Managing Editor of Lifestyle Asia Hong Kong. “For all the finest places to eat and drink, see and stay in Singapore, our sister team is definitely the authority.”
As this is a situation that will move in tandem with fluctuating COVID-19 cases, readers looking for updates can bookmark the section or check back on social media sites.
“The hope is that we can expand to include more countries should the travel bubble expand and eventually be so large that we can have our travel section up and running again,” said Christoph Pagel, Digital Operations Director Asia.
